"I like Oklahoma because I've visited there and I like the coaching staff," says Nemons. "They just have a good environment there. The football program at Oklahoma is a winning one, and they've been winning a lot of their games this season too. They always have a chance at a national championship every year. It's a good school for academics as well. "They have a real attacking defense and they have the kind of players that really go after it when they get in there. And they're really good at shutting other offenses down.

"My whole family has liked Texas ever since I can remember. They have a great tradition and some really good players come out of there. They have a good defense right now, and they did all right against Oklahoma recently. They have a good defense and a real good school there.

"I like Kansas because the coaches have been saying a lot of good things about me at DT. They tell me I could be playing there during my first year. They have a good school and everything, and I've heard a lot of good things about them. I'm going to take an official visit there to learn more about the school and the program.

"Colorado has been calling me lately and I also have a good chance at playing early if I go there. It's a good thing if I can play early and that's why I like them.

"LSU has one of the best defenses in the league and they want me to play there early too. It's not too far from home either. They have a good team and they've won a national championship…a real winning school."
